For what ever thier reasons previous owners do not always say the truth.

I would suggest checking the Camshaft Timing First to see if that is correct since the Timing Chain turns the Fuel Injection Pump.
Not hard to do. Line the Timing Mark on the Camshaft Gear up with the one on the Camshaft Bearing Tower and look down at the degree marks on the Crankshaft Damper.

Another issue is that the Degree Pointer sometimes bent or otherwise moved around.

Below is the rest of the repar section:

I followed the DoItYourSelf article for timing the IP and all I get is a steady stream from the drip tube even when I push the IP as near to the engine as possible. I will try again in the morning. The car has sat here for over 8 months now and I might as well try and get her going. Its a nice car and it would be great to get it on the road. I will part it out this winter if I fail to get her going.

Thank you for your comments and links.
